Hi Dana! I like many kinds of garden art, but I have a penchant for statues and sculpture.

Hi Stormy, that is a great statue! Looks antique like what would have been found in a Victorian Garden ... very nice!

Most of my garden art is cheapy stuff .. fades out so fast in the blazing summer sun here. I love Angel's as garden art but love just about anything else sitting in a garden amongst the blooms too! One of my favorite pieces is this cement sign made by BetterBloom/Sandy from DG.

This is something I made after seeing phot's and reading about it on a DG Forum. An old bowling ball covered with flower pic's cut from magazines. I have broken so many glass globes over the years I decided to never buy another one and when I saw this craft on DG I just had to try. It's faded out now but I hope to re-do it and do another in mirror bits. I saw one done in pennies too that was really neat!

This photo is kind of dark because it was a cloudy day, but you can get the idea I think. My bowling ball/gazing ball:

Lin, Your sign are very nice and I LOVE that ball.

That staue is old, how old I don't know. It's in pretty good condition, so either it was kept inside or under a shelter of some kind.

Stormy: That statue really is great, is it made of cement? It looks heavy!

Dana: The bowling ball art is so much fun ... and if this old blonde who has no creative talent whatsoever can do it, anyone can do it! I saw some on DG that were done with mosaic tiles, pennies glued to them, and mirrored glass and I think someone did one with colored glass chips. I guess the ideas are limitless. A friend of mine gave me two old bowling balls but someone said to ask at a local bowling alley to see if they have any they don't want anymore. When they get cracked or worn out after many years I guess they throw them out. I have one someplace that had a wide crack around the middle and my husband filled the crack for me and sanded it all down ... I never decided what to put on it but was thinking of smashing up an old mirror to use! The ball is out in the shed someplace and I need to find it and get busy. I love the idea of mirrors. And, the bowling balls are so heavy there's less of a chance of them breaking like the glass gazing balls!

Keep us posted if you do one ... and show us a picture!

Yes, Lin. It is cement. I'm also very fond of Putti and have quite a few lurking about.

I like the shape of spheres in the garden and I have a couple of these glazed ceramic ones around. They are about 18" tall.
